Love is all around you
5 FEB 2023
It's that time of year again when Cupid dusts off his bow and arrows, when hearts and flowers are in the air, and declarations of love are made. Valentine’s Day may be traditionally associated with romantic love, but we say let’s celebrate all the many forms of love that surround us.
Here's to all the kinds of love that nourished us.
Those who raised us
Take our family members, for instance. They may drive us crazy at times, but they’re the ones who have been with us through thick and thin. Maybe they taught us how to ride a bike, helped us with our homework, or took care of us when we were sick. A thoughtful gift for your favourite family members this Valentine’s Day could be as simple as cooking a special meal with freshly airflown ingredients from Culina Market and some home-made DIY cocktails with this signature cocktail kit.
Those who laughed with us
And then we have our friends. They know all our secrets, and somehow still think we’re cool enough to hang out with. They’re our sounding boards, our cheerleaders, and our partners in crime. To show your appreciation and toast to your lifetime bond, why not a quick girls’ spa trip to Bangkok or some freeflow Billecart-Salmon bubbles at The Dempsey Cookhouse and Bar?
Those who taught us
For the mentors in our lives, whether a teacher, coach, or boss, it’s important to show them how much their guidance and support has meant to us. Other than a heartfelt thank you note, you could send them an Invigorate aromatic hand-poured candle or a fun porcelain mug for their desk.
Those who have our backs
Don’t forget your co-workers either. They’re your comrades through thick and thin, five days a week. Show them how much you appreciate their support and confidence in you. Chocolate treats are always popular in the workplace, bring in an assortment of Läderach pralines and truffles or some of that delectable Frischshoggi.
Love is everywhere indeed. It’s in the connection we have with our family, friends, and even the casual acquaintances we have in our lives. We laugh together, support each other in times of need, give sage advice, and perform random (or not-so-random) acts of kindness for each other. This Valentine’s Day, remember to reach out to the people in our lives who make our days that much more vibrant and maybe even surprise them with a gift from the heart.
